one of my favorite actual human internet spiderweb search box people types (i think he finds the end of the internet each day, no easy task), sent in this video this morning. looks like this guy got a ticket for riding a bike NOT in the bike lane. um, er?
i lived in nyc for 8 years, but that was before all the awesome bike infrastructure went down. as far as i know, i biked plenty not in the bike lane, but never got a ticket. i musta felt lucky, punk.
he tackles this serious issue (i mean really, cops not knowing that bikes can ride outside the bike lane is serious to me...) with some seriously funny humor. his defense is hey, sometimes riding not in the bike lane is safer because there are obstacles in the way. like police cars.
ok, is this guy awesome or what? and what does he do? stunts? mountain biking? he falls off his bike with such grace!
